Family Support Services
Family Support Services help the families of children and adults with disabilities access appropriate services and resources via the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) to improve the quality of life. Services may include respite, camp, and other services as they relate to their disability. Traditionally these individuals have no other supports provided through Medicaid.
